Juvenile Court Contracted Programs 

Orchard Place Early Service Project (ESP) and Latino Outreach and Targeted Supervision Programs (LOTS) are two services contracted with Polk County Juvenile Court Services.  ESP is also funded through the Polk County Child Welfare Decategorization Program (DECAT).  These programs are to assist clients and families in navigating the Juvenile Justice System and to decrease recidivism of youth involved in Juvenile Court Services.

Youth receive:

  • Individual Counseling
  • Skill-building
  • School Attendance and Behavior Monitoring
  • Crisis Intervention
  • Family Support
  • Referrals to Community Resources


Referrals are received from Juvenile Court Officers. Services are funded through a contract with Juvenile Court.
